Rockwell Automation has entered into a definitive agreement to buy Pavilion Technologies, a privately held company that is a recognised leader in advanced process control, production optimisation and environmental compliance solutions for process and hybrid industries. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas USA, with offices in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, Pavilion Technologies serves major customers in consumer products, oil and gas, chemicals and other process industries.
The Pavilion Technologies management team and employees will become part of Rockwell Automation’s architecture and software segment.
Pavilion Technologies software products will be integrated into the Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk integrated production and performance suite, as well as the Logix Control Platform.
This acquisition continues Rockwell’s investment in the process automation business and expands its capabilities to serve this major global market more completely.
Combining Pavilion Technologies’ predictive modelling capabilities with the already-robust ability of Rockwell’s integrated architecture to control process applications will help customers create a more agile, efficient and consistent production environment. That translates into faster response to market demands at lower cost with better quality.
Pavilion Technologies is delighted to combine its companies at a time when manufacturers are making unprecedented investments in improving their production operations.
Pavilion Technologies’ leadership in model-based advanced process control software, along with Rockwell Automation’s global resources and financial strength will accelerate its innovation efforts and help Pavilion solidify its market leadership position.
